As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Physicians to Michelle: Eat Healthy

A leading health advocacy group is set to demand that President Obama, his family and leading advisers tone down the intake of unhealthy foods in public, saying it sets a bad example for the rest of us.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which promotes preventive health measures, plans to file a petition this week asking Obama to issue an executive order banning staged photos of the president, his family, the vice president and Cabinet members eating unhealthy foods, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Though he cuts a lean figure, the president is well known for his poor food choices. He makes high profile forays to a Washington area burger joint, including one with Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev, and can be regularly seen downing heaps of junk food while traveling around the country.

But Michelle, who promotes healthy eating through her “Let’s Move” kids health initiative, has herself been photographed eating pizza, ice cream, burgers, fries and cookies. She’s a regular at a local Washington pizza parlor, has hit the same burger joint as her husband, and has served all kinds of unhealthy treats and high-calorie meals to White House visitors.

At last year’s White House Super Bowl party, Michelle laid out a spread that included bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep dish pizza, Snyder’s potato chips and dips, german potato salad, and ice cream.

  1. The old adage applies: do as I say not as I do

    These people are the worst example of a first couple in my memory…and I’ve been around for a lot of them (16 to be exact)

  2. This “leading” health advocacy group is a PETA lite group, who wants to ban all animal testing and promotes a vegan or vegetarian diet. So yeah, they’d be offended by O eating a hot dog.

    As much as I believe Michelle is a hypocrit, we don’t need an executive order, rather I think we need more pictures of their true “do as I say, not as I do” nature.

  3. Aren’t there bigger fish to fry nowadays than the First Family’s preferred eating style? Economy and all that?
    Another red herring?

    • DV, surely the bigger point did not escape you, and you are choosing to minimize the issue by mocking the writer. Just in case yours in an honest question, the point is, the Obamas, by meddling in diet, health and food choices then not practicing what they demand of others demonstrate their hypocrisy. Red herring? Hardly. Their actions directly affect our individual econominc condition and our individual freedom. Nothing is bigger than that in a republic.

  4. Yea right. They are royalty. They can fly around the country living the lavish life, while advising us all about excessive salaries of THE RICH. LIkewise, they lecture us about healthy eating, while enjoying what they want/ when they want.

  5. I don’t care what they eat. Just wish the grifters would stop trying to control what we eat. This is just another shiny object to distract us as their czars/czarinas are busy snuffing out the free market and stealing our freedom and liberty.

  6. She’s a ‘regular’ at a Washington D.C. piizza parlor??? After she removed pizza from school lunches??? The irony of it all! Her ‘healthy food initiative’ for public school ends up in cafeteria trash bins while she stuffs her face with pizza in front of the little kiddies! Not to mention the fact that her trips to the pizza parlor are costing us a fortune! The least she could do is order Domino’s – they deliver!

  7. If the Preezy had walked into my dear Mother’s home, she would have insisted that he eat everything she could find in the fridge; from pierogies smothered in real butter to a large cheesecake slice topped with sour cream.
    She would have made sly comments about his wife’s lack of concern for his “health” and her indifferent cooking skills.
    After he left, she would have tsk-tsked how skinny he was and how his wife was to blame for his condition.

    Today, the opinion’s have changed on how a man is supposed to look, but we still blame the “wife” for the condition….just like Keith does.

    • I’m confused — where do you see Keith saying that BO is skinny because of Michelle? Or is my sar-o-meter on the blink this morning?

    • srdem65, pierogies, do you mean those stuffed, delicious Russian pastries ? And on top of that,´homemade cheesecake with sourcream….delicious ! Your mother must have been a great cook.

      • Oh memories of my first mother in law she was half Russian and half
        Chinese she was the best cook mostly Russian oh those pierogies I
        loved them have her original recipe but they never taste the same.
        Now all I want are pierogies and a tub of sour cream…yummy and
        fattening:)

  8. I’ve never patterned my diet after what a politician eats, who the hell would care what Mooch and Skinny eat? If BO ate poop would everybody else run out and eat poop? I guess the obots would but that would be ok. Of course Mooch sets herself up for ridicule with her phony BS about eating healthy and the WH garden. Personally I hope they get as fat as pigs at the trough, which is what libs do in so many ways.

  9. It’s interesting that the Obamas are so often photographed chowing down on family vaycays and outings and the published WH dinner menus are impressive calorie fests. Obots claim these are “occasional treats,” but I doubt that The One and The Wife eat wheat germ and plain yogurt when out of the public eye.

    I have wondered why Michelle and Barack have not used WH public dinners and events to illustrate eating well without indulging in high-fat foods. It seems to me if they had an honest commitment to this message they would be living the lifestyle at every public opportunity instead of keeping it to Michelle’s occasionally going to a occasional school and sharing a carrot with school kids.

    It’s ironic that doctors have to ask our Food Leaders to eat the way that they tell us to eat.

    • I AM HOPING THAT THEY BEGIN TO DRINK NUTRITIONAL SUPPLIMENTS WHEN THEY SKIP MEALS.. THEY OFTEN WORK IN LIKE TWO STATES EACH DAY SPEAKING AND EDUCATING MILLIONS OF AMERICANS, COLLEGE STUDENTS, AND STREET PEOPLE TOO. THEY ARE A GOD SENT BLESSING.TO AMERICA . THEY TRAVEL IN A PLANE THAT IS 20 YEARS OLD AND IS PROBABLY RUN ON BIO-FUELS, IT HAS SOLAR PANELS ON ITS SIDES. THEY JUST WORK VERY VERY HARD ALL OF THE TIME.

HE IS THE BEST MOST WONDERFUL PRESIDENT EVER EVER EVER IN THE UNITED STATES. please see me on facebook DCINNAMIN BAKER. and see my groups. the last vacation lasted three day because they had to come home because of a storm. They Love Americans so much that they work all the time even on vacation they write speeches & accept call from mayors and Governors. They are great and the smartest ever.

  10. We’re only supposed to listen to and heed what the Obamas tell us to do. We’re not supposed to expect them to set an example.

  11. I don’t think either BO or MO have the bodies of healthy eaters. If BO still smokes, I’m sure that’s why he’s so skinny. MO want to wag a stalk of celery at me, but doesn’t look like she’s ever said no to a twinkie. :D

    • NO MY MAN PRESIDENT OBAMA DOES NOT SMOKE AND I AM HOPING THAT THEY BEGIN TO DRINK NUTRITIONAL SUPPLIMENT WHEN THEY SKIP MEALS.

  12. Here’s why I care what the Obama’s eat. Obamacare. If they’re going to shove that health care plan down my throat, then the Mr. and Mrs. behind it need to be stellar examples of good health, good diet and good eating habits.

    Granted, Obamacare may be struck down, but if not, it will require an electronic health record on each and every person in the US that visits a doctor or hospital. Every doctor and hospital will be required to participate in the electronic health records to receive Federal subsidies.

    One requirement of the electronic health record is to include a Body Mass Index calculation done yearly. This applies to all adults and children over the age of 2. You can be certain the cost of your health insurance is going to be based on your BMI.

    • I THINK THEY ARE EATING PRETTY GOOD. THEY GROW THEIR GARDEN TO AND FEED OTHERS BUT I THINK THEY MOST LIKELY ONLY EAT TURKEY WHEN THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A CHANCE TO EAT. I’M HOPING THAT THEY WILL DRINK NUTRITIONAL SUPPLIMENTS LIKE NUTRIMENT OR ENSURE WHEN THEY SKIP MEALS. I WOULD LOVE TO FEED PRESIDENT OBAMA SOME COLLARD GREENS AND A TURKEY THAT I CAN BAKE HERE IN MY HOME WITH RICE FOR DINNER. I HOPE I CAN INVITE THEM OVER SOMEDAY SOON. I JUST CREATED 50 NEW SONGS FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO CREATING 75 MORE NEW SONGS TO HIM. I LOVE PRESIDENT OBAMA A GREAT AMOUNT. I WOULD LOVE TO COOK FOR HIM SOME TIMES. BY THE WAY SOME HOT DOGS AND VEGGIE BURGERS ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE BEEF BECAUSE THE ARE MADE WITH BROWN MUSHROOMS AS GRAINS. I’VE TRIED SOME OF THOSE. GOD BLESS. PLEASE SEE SOME OF THE 3000 VIDEOS ON ‘WHITEHOUSE CHANNEL’ SEARCH BOX IT ON YOUTUBE.COM ONLY ‘WHITEHOUSE CHANNEL’ HAS THE TRUTH ABOUT HIS GREAT WONDERFUL WORKS. SEE HIS LIST OF LEGISTLATIONS UNDER briefing room on http://www.whitehouse.gov AND PLEASE TELL 1000 PEOPLE TO WATCH ‘WHITEHOUSE CHANNEL’ SEE ME ON FACEBOOK TOO IN MY GROUPS. I JUST WENT TO SEE PRESIDENT OBAMA ON MAY 5TH, 2012. AT VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY. HE IS TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL. I COULD JUST HUG HIM ALL NIGHT LONG ANY NIGHT.

  13. Is this absurd or what? Personally I could care less what they eat – but they have set themselves up for this. First of all, I think it is ridiculous that a group would actually want a mandate that they can’t eat unhealthy food in public or need to tone it down. If they (really She) wasn’t so holier than you know what about what people should and should not eat – this would be a nonissue. They ask for all of this scrutiny.

  14. The shortfall of Michelle’s Eat Healthy Campaign is she offers no alternative. What is missing is few know how to cook. Also, does the average person want to spend the time in the kitchen?

  15. Just in public? And again liberals show they are all about “Do as I say, not as I do.” Reminds me of the hypocrisy of Rosie O’Donnell coming out for gun control while her bodyguard packs heat.

  16. Not only does MooCow not practice what she preaches, she has a dirty little secret! Liposuction! Funny how she magically shed around 30 pounds one week-end last year when she snuck off to visit her brother in Oregon! She ‘exercises’ regularly – in the WH hospital facility every time she hops on the operating table for a few nips and tucks and suctioning!

    Who can forget the photo that shocked the world 3 years ago when she lumbered down the steps of AF One in her short shorts with her thunder thighs and belly rolls prominently displayed for all to see! It has taken 3 years and an army of professionals and millions of taxpayer $$$ to get her to the point of being moderately presentable. A silk purse, she’s not! A hypocrite – YES

    • I SERIOUSLY THINK THAT WHEN EVER THEY EAT IN A RESTAURANT IT IS GOOD FOR THAT PARTICULAR AREAS ECONOMY BECAUSE PEOPLE shall eat there thinking it has been investigated by fbi and found to be safe and clean. They have been eating very good foods and lots of salads although some veggie burgers made of brown mushrooms and grains appear to be beef at times. It is A PERSONS OWN DECISION ON WHAT THEY SHOULD CHOOSE TO EAT IN ANY GIVEN RESTAURANT AS WELL AS I HAVE NOTED THAT THE OBAMAS SET A GREAT ROLE MODEL AS HARD WORKERS THEN THEY VOLUNTEER A SHELTERS A LOT TOO, THEY ARE VERY NICE PEOPLE. I WOULD ADVISE YOU NOT TO DIG FOR ANY DIRT ON THEM BECAYSE THEY ARE THE BEST, THE GREATEST GOD ALMIGHTY SENT THEM. THEY WORK HARD EVERYDAY MANY TIMES THEY WORK IN TWO STATES PER DAY TRAVELING IN A PLANE THAT IS TWENTY YEARS OLD. IT IS PROBABLY RUN ON BIO FUELS. I JUST WENT TO SEE PRESIDENT OBAMA IN VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY ON MAY 5TH, 2012. PLEASE TELL 1000 PEOPLE TO WATCH ‘WHITEHOUSE CHANNEL’ ON YOUTUBE.COM type in ‘WHITEHOUSE CHANNEL’ IN THE SEARCH BOX ON YOUTUBE. THEY HAVE 3000 VIDEOS OF HIS EVERYDAY WORK and everything he does. HE IS VERY VERY HONEST AND A GREAT HARD WORKER. I TOTALLY LOVE HIM . PLEASE SEE ME ON FACEBOOK. DCINNAMIN BAKER AND please see my groups on FACEBOOK.

  17. Michelle…MOOch, MOOse, MOOchelle,

    Please stop being photographed shoving food into your gaping maw. You have the table manners of a swine. If this is how you look in public, we can only imagine the horror of the quantity and manner in which you shovel buckets of food into your big mouth behind the scenes.

    Have a little class, would you? Queen Elizabeth, you aren’t. You are Tacky O.

  18. I SERIOUSLY THINK THAT WHEN EVER THEY EAT IN A RESTAURANT IT IS GOOD FOR THAT PARTICULAR AREAS ECONOMY BECAUSE PEOPLE shall eat there thinking it has been investigated by fbi and found to be safe and clean.

THEY ARE REALLY VERY NICE HONEST HARD WORKING PEOPLE and I see that it makes A lot of people want to be Good like them. President obama said that Gays are loyal so they are also good for the economy and they contribute to keeping our world organized in a neat orderly way by getting married where possible. I watched the video on youtube. BACK TO THE MAIN TOPIC A WOMAN HER AGE WOULD NORMALLY WEIGH ABOUT 200 POUNDS BUT THEY SET A GREAT TREND IN EATING A LOT OF SALADS AND SHE HAS A GARDEN THAT FEED MORE PEOPLE IN THE LOCAL AREA. I LOVE HER HUSBAND AS IF HE WAS MINE TOO.

  19. Apparently my phrasing was not acceptable…so let me gently rephrase : you dont seriously think the rules apply to the current residents of the White House, do you ?
    Better, Keith??
